Golf course design is a very lucrative career, with new courses springing up all over the world, often in areas that don't possess the natural features and contours of old and that have to be landscaped from the existing terrain. Have you ever thought about the placement of hazards on your home course, or wondered about the bunkering on a dogleg corner? Just what do the terms "strategic", "heroic" and "penal" really mean for a golfer? Is the championship course the model for all? Golf is a game that turns even the weekend hacker into an armchair architect, and enthusiast for the possibilities of golf course design. Striking the balance between the natural form of the land and the eye of the artisan is the nub of golf architecture. Leading golf architects from 15 countries present their ideas in this first of two volumes providing an international assessment of the principles and practices of golf architecture. Daley has gathered architects' and writers' thoughts on diverse topics such as the impact of equipment technology on design, the effects of hazards on the golfer's psyche, the influence of pioneer designers on contemporary architects, the practice of Tiger-proofing layouts and more.
